Abstract
    Humus profiles of dune soils on 46 sites along the Flemish coast and in northwest France were classified according to three classification systems (Delecour, 1980; Green et al., 1993 and Jabiol et al., 1995). These classification systems are not well adapted to young ecosystems on almost pure sand. Problems arose in the keys themselves and in the terminology and criteria which are used to classify the soils.
